Our next patch is coming soon! Read on to learn about the new difficulty levels, new and updated items, Adventure Mode updates, and UI changes you’ll see in Patch 2.4.2.


New Difficulty Levels

With new power comes a desire to test your strength. If you’ve sharpened your weapons on Torment X and are ready for new challenges, you’ll be happy to hear we’ve added Torment XI–XIII difficulties to the game, and filled them with progressively better loot—so get out there and wreck face, nephalem!

As with previous patches, Patch 2.4.2 brings updates to many Legendary and Set Items and also adds a few new items and Legendary powers. Here are some of the items we’ve updated, and don’t forget to check out our PTR patch notes for all the details.

User Interface Updates

Finally, we have a few changes to the user interface. Those who enjoy taking screenshots will soon have a hotkey that hides the in-game UI for cleaner shots. We’re also adding unique pylon minimap icons to Nephalem Rifts and Greater Rifts, and a unique icon for the Menagerist Treasure Goblin.

Adventure Mode Changes

We’re also sweetening Adventure Mode rewards, starting with Nephalem Rifts. You’re now guaranteed a Greater Rift Key when completing any Rift, with a chance to get a second (or even a third) key as you increase the game’s difficulty. We’ve also adjusted drop rates for Infernal Machines, with a 100% drop chance in Torment IV, and an increasing chance for a second machine to drop as you go up in difficulty.


New challenges and updated items await you once the patch arrives! We can’t wait to see what builds you'll create and the stories you’ll have to share when Season 7 arrives. Are you ready? Let us know what you’re most excited about, feel free to ask any questions you have in the comments, and GL HF!
